you are the best Jeep builder EVER!!!! This thing is going to rock!!!! And you are right, no way you could use this in Michigan, this is an out-of-state rig all the way!!! You should think about entering this bad boy in a contest!

havent gotten much done since the girlfriends grandmother passed away a week ago, I've been busy with that sort of thing but it's calming down now and I have had some time to snap a few pictures, clean some wheels and mount a tire...



random shot of my dads tire... this is after about a dozen runs in a year and a half, I'd say they are wearing pretty well





lots of tires


this one didnt turn out very clear but it's my thermostat outlet that goes straight rather than left or right... should make hose routing a bit cleaner


I made a pair of these when I first started and they work great... it's like another set of hands! you use hose clamps on each end of each saddle.


Benny87 snuck in some machine time at his work and had them whip up some winch pullies that I have wanted for a while now, all the ones I have done previously were manually turned, whiterhino had a couple cnc'd at his place for his build but I cant get my hands on those very easily so Ben turned the last set... I'd like to sell them but I'm not sure who would pay $40 for one since that's about what it'll cost to make them available.


getting low on tube


I just had to tig these on.... mig just wouldnt look right with how nice the knuckles are.




my tube notcher


I made this a few months ago.... best tool I've made to date! I scored the anvil and X section on craigslist and the 1" thick base from a previous employer that was scrapping some fixtures.


close up of the sides.


one of the most valuable tools of the build.... I use it vertical more than normal style.


the 15 year old millermatic 150.... it's built many vehicles and trailers


tire comparison


and the coolest picture of all.... not many people believe me when I say I can touch the lugs together. they would be touching but I loose a little grip when trying to position the camera in the other hand

Love the thread title .. hate the rig.


The whole thing looks too expensive. Obviously building for more than what your average wheeler is doing. When are you going to move out of MI?


btw, if you decide to sell it in two years (about the time marriage and babies comes for you) .. can I have dibs?

looking good. better get on the phone bryce so you can get all that free stuff bryan has hooked up with. i do know if you really want to do WE rock, get a race schedule and profile of you and the buggy in to all the manufactures. you will be surprised with the help you will receive.if you can get cost or half off it's better then nothing.i started that way with moto cross and before i new it, i was getting free bikes and tons of gear.every year if your on the manufactures sponsor list, the deals get better if you do good and promote those who help you. get back to work!!
